Perkins Restaurant & Bakery is adding a location on the east side of Sioux Falls.
Construction is expected to start in April on land along Arrowhead Parkway in front of Menards.
Franchisee Jim Rahfaldt is originally from northwest Iowa and opened his first Perkins in the Okoboji area in 2007.
“I just felt there was a need on the east side of Sioux Falls for a good breakfast brand like Perkins,” he said.
Rahfaldt has 15 other Perkins locations in six states, including one in Kansas that opens today. He owns the Perkins restaurants in Yankton and Sioux City.
He is not the franchisee for the other three Perkins restaurants in Sioux Falls. Those are split between two other franchisees.
The restaurant at 2604 W. 41st St. is being remodeled and is scheduled to reopen Wednesday.
The east-side location also will have Perkins’ latest prototype, Rahdaldt said, which features softer colors and a relaxing environment.
His goal is to hire about 105 people and be open before Labor Day.
Perkins, which marks 60 years in business this year, has about 400 locations.
